WATCH: The team reads mean viewer comments

From the Newsroom

THE INTERNET — Thousands of comments are posted every week on stories, our Twitter feed and Facebook page. We receive dozens of emails, text messages, phone calls and even hand-written letters.

Many of these messages are tips that help us break stories. Others are kind words and nice compliments. Most are from people just voicing their opinions about news of the day.

Then there are those comments that are, well, just brutally mean. The vast majority of the time they are sent anonymously or posted from fake Facebook profiles.

One of the most popular segments on late night TV is when Jimmy Kimmel has celebrities read mean tweets written about themselves. None of us at are late night comedians, but we decided to show you some of the best mean comments we’ve received over the years.

And, no matter how much you hate or love us, we couldn’t do our jobs without you and appreciate you visiting (and commenting about)
